Camp Gen. Artemio Ricarte, Puerto Princesa City – Troops from the Western Command (Wescom) conducted its Coastal Clean-Up Drive on Saturday, August 3, in the coastal area surrounding the military camp as part of its thrust on environmental protection and preservation.

 

 “Our soldiers will never stop participating in any environmental protection and preservation activities,” said Lt. Gen. Rustico O. Guerrero, commander of the unified command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in Palawan.

 Team Wescom and troops from the Naval Forces West also took part in a massive clean-up drive held earlier in Wescom Road, from the corner of the National Highway near Junction 1 up to the front gate of Camp Gen. Artemio Ricarte, sweeping and picking up stray garbage along the way.

 “Environmental protection is everybody’s concern and our untiring participation in these activities is to stress the role of AFP as environmental protectors,” Guerrero said.
